I want to particularly highlight this bit:

STEP 4B: AVOID RESEARCH

I’m unsure whether not doing something can be a step. But that’s not important. What’s important is avoiding research. I’m serious. Research is useful in two phases: the idea phase and the rewriting phase. In between, research is a stupid boring voice that says, It doesn’t work like that. You know what? I’m writing this story, I’ll tell you how it goddamn works. I’ll make it plausible in rewrites.

Because for real, if you’re in the middle of your first draft, your one and only job is to get through that first draft. Make a note and fix it later. Lately I’ve been shooting myself in the foot by trying to find the exact location of a building that doesn’t exist anymore. For two hours. When I could have written ‘do this later’ and kept on.

Whatever you do, keep writing.

So everyone is always asking me for book recommendations so I decided to make a master post of books (Most are YA books because a large majority of people on here read them). Each book is linked to the goodreads page for it (for series I linked you to the first book) and next to it are the main genres.

i think about the 3d printed spider robot dancing to salsa a lot and im not sure if it’s because of the music or if it’s because of the hypnotizing dance moves
most likely both 

this is the best thing ive ever seen in my whole life
